I like this:
On this day in 1944: More than 150,000 Allied troops landed in Normandy.
Timelapse shows their 87 days of combat.

But I’d like it a lot more if it was slowed down. Or at least slowable down. The early stages when it was fairly static work well. The later bits, when the Americans raced around the south, creating the Falaise Pocket, and then how that Pocket emptied, are too quick to tell the story. You have to know it already.
Even so, what a story.
